This game plays like Overlord meets The Haunted Mansion where your handed a group of minons and then left to figure out the best way to use them. Its fun in a qurky Scoobydoo kind of way that seems aimed at more casual players who want a silly and slightly cheasey time-waster, rather then a more hardcore group looking for a good chalangeing game. Unforuntely it's not without its flaws and boy dose it have a lot, nothing game breakingly bad but enough to make a lot of people think twice before buying this game.
You can tell this game is old as the graphics are really outdated and all the characters talk in the "Sim's speek" version of pig latin while "thought bubbles" with vage pictures in them float over their heads which I guess is suposed to tell you something but most the time I have no clue what I'm looking at till I check the bio. Natrualy once everyone starts telling me what their scared of most of them are already fleeing in bind terror so I have to wonder what the whole point was.
The Second issue is the frustration factor. The clues droped though out the game are often so cryptic and unhelpful you ether have to replay the same haunt over and over again till you figure out the right combos or just look up the guide which can quickly kill the fun. I'm sure the developers thought they had come up with some clever puzzles but with no real hints and a rather impatient tutorial at the begining I forsee many ragequits. At times the dialog with the traped sprits can come off as a bit lazy as well, like the writers just threw togeather a placeholder statement intending to come up with something better later on, but never did.
All and all this game has a lot of potential, unfortunately most of it goes untaped but it's still fun to experiment with all the diffrent types of ghost and powers just to see what happens, there's no downside to simply reseting a haunt until you get the results you wanted. If your willing to be patient this game can be a lot of fun, otherwise I'd look somewhere elce. I could see this game benfiting from a reboot.
